Let us put on the garment of praise this season to honour and magnify our God, for His right hand has done valiantly for us since the year began.
He has kept us by His power, fed us with His word, strengthened us, protected us, fought our battles, provided for us, blessed us in diverse ways, healed us, restored our souls. This is just to mention but a few amongst innumerable things he has done for us as individuals, families and Church.
No single individual among us will say the Lord has not been faithful to Him or her. The Bible says in Psalm 150:6 that everything that has breath should praise the Lord. David says, because the love of God is better than life, his lips will glorify and praise God as long as he lives (Psalm 63:3-4, 104:33). If David, who was under the law and worked with God on the basis of the old covenant could acclaimed those beautiful words concerning God, what about us who are under grace and have benefitted from the sacrifice of Jesus? Definitely, we will do better.
So, do not let your soul be downcast and do not be disturbed within your spirit but put your hope in God as you praise Him because He is your saviour and your God. Only a God like Him deserves your praise.
The month of December is declared
Brethren, let us praise His name with songs and dance to appreciate Him for His wonderful works (Psalm 78:4).
